Review: Bound by Eva Charles

Review: Bound by Eva Charles

Smith Sinclair guards the gates to the darkest corners of Charleston, and I need access for a story.
Despite my best efforts, he stonewalls me at every turn, treating me like a plaything with his outrageous demands.

He’s unapologetic and arrogant, and refuses to play fair. Yet I find his scathing honesty and brazen confidence irresistible. Staying away from him isn’t an option. Not for me.

But Sinclair isn’t the only danger lurking in the shadows. And as he distracts me with his games, each lead I chase drags me deeper into a sinister plot.

In the end, I’m bound to make a choice that might cost one of us everything.

While Bound can be read as a standalone, it is the third book in The Devil’s Due series and is best enjoyed after reading Depraved and Delivered. Bound has no cliffhanger.

My Review:
Title: Bound
Author: Eva Charles
Format: Ebook
Genre: Romance – Enemies to Lovers, Small Town, Dark Themes, Kink
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book 3 in The Devil’s Due series
POV: Smith and Kate
Steam Level: Kindle-Melting with some dark sexual themes

Bound is the third book in The Devil’s Due. If you haven’t read JD and Gabby’s duet I highly recommend it. Not because you need to in order to understand this book, but because they’re amazing. I love how Eva Charles addresses some of the darker themes in Bound. If you’re looking for light-hearted romance, this isn’t it. But if you want a sexy romance, full of snark, steam and trial by fire then this is the book for you.

I received an advanced copy of this book for free. This si my honest and voluntary review.
